After Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet is probably Shakespeare’s most performed play.
The eponymous lovers have become synonymous with intense young love, and the image of a young man wooing his love at a balcony, iconic. Dr Abigail Rokison's talk will explore a range of stage productions and adaptations of Romeo and Juliet, aimed specifically at young people.
This talk is part of the Birmingham Speakers at Hay series. Tickets for this talk, and other talks featuring in this series, are available directly from the Hay Festival.
